6pm - 10pm
Sanborn Square Park, Mizner - Boca Raton, FL

Back again judging for a 3rd year (hoping for no rain)... Ready to taste the best of best yet again! With 18 burger contenders this event it's going to be worth every bite. The price of admission may be a bit steep ($50) but it's worth it! Not only are you able to sample from the 18 burger vendors but you also get samples from 11 craft breweries, 8 wineries, new Svedka vodka and Cockspur rum flavors. This jam packed event is a meat lovers dream although there will be "alternative burgers" as well... Showcasing 2013's Judges Pick winner BITE Gastro Truck & 2013 Peoples Choice winner Mortons Steakhouse. Along with new local favorites from Tucker Duke's Lunchbox, Boca Raton Burger House & Salt 7. If you're lucky enough to find a Groupon or Living Social deal for half price VIP Tickets, BUY THEM! The luxury of having couches to relax on in a sectioned off area, additional upgraded drinks and an additional french fry bar from Super Dave's BBQ is a bonus.

As a judge, I'm looking for the full package in a single bite. I want the flavors to scream at my brain to keep eating. Do not overcook the burger. Keep it simple & fresh with the toppings. When sampling a slider size judging burger it should't be messy. Honestly, one bite should tell the whole story. Good luck to all the contenders...

I'll be posting live pictures from the judges table... STAY TUNED!
